- 9 years agoFavorite Answer
<heavy sigh> LOL not at the question but the answers that that are so sure of themselves without ever watching the news or even knowing that there are more than two parties.
There's been about 30 women who have submitted candidacy for the Office of the President of the United States of America.
Several women have run more than once.
Here is a list of the candidates, which party they represented, who their running mate was for Vice-Presidency and how many votes they received.
Yes, the 1940 listing is Gracie Allen the actress, as a publicity stunt for the George Burns Show Gracie Allen announced she was running for President of the United States on the Surprise Party ticket. Burns and Allen did a cross-country whistlestop campaign tour on a private train, performing their live radio show in different cities. Allen went on to receive 42,000 votes in the general election in November 1940; only six other female United States presidential and vice-presidential candidates have received more votes in a presidential election.
It is the only case of a female running for the office that was a stunt .... the rest were dead serious.
